They said if we bring Einstein here and people will look at this and say: Berlin is where the action is, it’s worth whatever it takes to get him here.
On June 11th 1913, two men arrived at Z train station, Max Planck and Walther Nernst, a renowned German chemist. They are hoping at personal appeal will persuade rebellious young scientist to return to his German homeland.
Two men, middle-aged guys in dark clothes, get off the train and they go find Einstein.
They are so different, Max Planck is very proper Prussian, always very well-dressed and well-groomed, wearing the monocle, talking in very formal tone, and there is Einstein in his refusing even back then, to comb his hair, and dress in, you know, sort of all old coats and however he feels like it, already starting not to wear socks. They make a great offer to him will be a professor the university of Berlin, he will be a number of Prussian Academy, he won’t really have to teach classes, he will have all the research help he need.
It was Max Planck, it was Nernest, it was the Prussian Academy of sciences, it was the entire world of physics that had said No, bearing down and saying: we want you. Einstein did not answer the offer.
Einstein says: why don’t you just go, take a trip for the rest of afternoon up the mountain.
He said, I met you at the train station when you come back, I will be carrying a bunch of flowers, and if the flowers are red I am coming to German, and if the flowers are white sorry no go, thanks for coming.
I have made the argument that Einstein delayed his answer to this question, in part because he shouldn’t want to leave with pleasure of being so deeply sought after. But it’s certainly true that this was not simply a snap decision.
As he often dose when he has a difficulty problem to solve, Einstein takes a long walk.
Z was comfortable, there was a lots to love there, you know, you don’t just walk away from that.
His wife really wants to stay there in Z. On the other hand, they’ve offered the greatest job imaginable.
